Many people don’t believe in God. About 17% of the world call themselves “Atheists”. They don’t believe that there is a spiritual world. They don’t believe in angels and the devil, as well. 17% is by far in the minority of the rest of humans but I can tell you one thing they make a lot of noise!
Many people look at science and reason that everything that exists (“matter”) can be measured. A dog exists because you can measure its height, length, weight, volume and how fast it can run and how loud it can bark etc. The wind exists because you can measure air pressure, the speed of wind and the temperature of wind.
What about dreams? Are dreams real? Many people had dreams that came true. Did you have dreams that felt so real that you were actually sorry to wake up?
God is spirit. We cannot measure God. He is too wonderful. He has no beginning and no end. That is why we call Him “God”. The scientists should change their definition about what is real; it is flawed. 83% of the world believe that the spiritual world is real. Many people had angels appear to them. God spoke OUT LOUD to many people in the Bible, like to Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, David etc. God speaks to people even today through the Bible, nature, in their conscience, voices, dreams and visions and the Holy Spirit. Psalm 24 reminds us to let the King in!
The enemies of God wish that He is not real because then they don’t have to go to Judgement Day. On Judgement Day King Jesus will be the judge. Those who He finds guilty of sin will be condemned to hell forever. Those who He finds innocent will live for millions of years with Him.
